Antique Furniture by Robson and Sons

Robson and Sons were cabinet makers of the highest standards; they were originally based in a small house at 42 Northumberland Street in Newcastle-on-Tyne. Robert Robson started the business in the William IV period of 1835 after serving his apprenticeship as a cabinet maker and upholsterer. His two sons followed in his footsteps to continue creating fine quality furniture along with working at hotels, churches to large ocean liners that were being built on the Tyne. After Robert’s death the sons opened a large factory where over 200 people were employed. Robson and Sons business carried on for four generations of their family before it was finally taken over by the Maple Group in 1953.

  1. I just acquired a wall mirror with the emblem of Robson and Sons. It’s says Heirloom also. Also says New castle of Tyne. I can’t find a picture of it anywhere. I’m trying to find out how old it is and possibly the history of the mirror. I am on the US. The state if Texas. If anyone can give me any info, it would be greatly appreciated.
